True Stories of False Confessions

Title True Stories of False Confessions
Author "Warden, Rob (Editor) and Steven A. Drizin (Editor) "
Publisher Northwestern University Press
Date 2009
Month August
Summary "Articles about some of the most critical accounts of false confessions in the U.S. justice system from more than forty authors, including Sydney H. Schanberg, Christine Ellen Young, Alex Kotlowitz, and John Grisham. Many of the pieces originally appeared in leading magazines and newspapers, including the "New York Times", "The Nation", the "New Yorker", and the "Los Angeles Times". By grouping the cases into categories - including brainwashing, fabrication, mental fragility, police force, and unrequited innocence - the editors demonstrate similarities between cases, thereby refuting the perception that false confessions represent individual tragedies rather than a systemic flaw in the justice system."
